Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 25 mins
Total Time: 35 mins
- 1 large green bell pepper
- 1 large red bell pepper
- 1 large yellow bell pepper
- 1 large orange bell pepper
- 1 lb ground beef
- 3 TB homemade taco seasoning
- ⅔ cup beef broth
- 6 oz shredded yellow cheddar cheese
- 4 oz shredded white cheddar cheese
- freshly chopped cilantro, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, and sour cream *Optional Toppings
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Wash and dry your bell peppers, then cut into small triangles.
- Place the cut peppers on a baking sheet in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Set aside.
- While the peppers are in the oven, brown the ground beef in a skillet on the stove over medium heat. Drain any excess liquids.
- Next, add taco seasoning and beef broth and bring to a boil. Simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes with the lid off so that the seasoning can infuse with the ground beef.
- Remove the lid and continue simmering until the taco meat reduces and becomes thick. You don’t want it liquidy. It should be nice and thick.
- Spoon the ground beef mixture onto each bell pepper covering from end to end as much as possible.
- Sprinkle the yellow cheddar cheese on top of the ground beef mixture then top with the white cheddar cheese.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven on the top shelf and bake for 5 minutes, then turn the oven to broil and broil for 1-2 minutes until the cheese melts and gets nice and bubbly. (Watch carefully as it can burn quickly!)
- Remove from the oven and top with chopped cilantro, lettuce, sour cream, red onion, jalapenos, and tomatoes.
